Walk through beautiful woodland along a path created during famine times in 19th century Ireland to the shores of Strangford Lough. In the company of your entertaining and informative guide Brigid, learn about the Irish legends, folklore and medicinal properties associated with the wild plants and trees in the woodland. Take time out to listen to nature. Spot the seabirds and maybe a seal or two on the rocky shore of the lough.

Be entertained with stories about the Vikings on and around Strangford Lough. Learn why Strangford was a hotspot for smuggling! We return to the heart of the village and you will discover the great maritime history of the port. It was an emigrant port for North America.
